    Wrong attitude. Get it to your and their heads: It's MY database, your just a tenant.

Funny .. I think the general notion is, it is usually development that says .. "it is our database, your job is to keep is running ..." Plus, code formatting, code standards and code review are steps invented by you DBehs just to slow us down. Yup, it affects the throughput ...

Can you explain exactly HOW I get a different set of developers, short of quitting my job? And how I ensure that the next set are any better? Considering the state of the economy in the US right now, that's not something I'd do lightly.

I simply smile at the developers, say "it's my database, any code that is placed in it without prior review will be deleted from the database".

I also repeat, over and over and over until they give in just to make me stop, that I will be part of all database design meetings because again, nothing goes into and STAYS in the database unless I've reviewed it. Think "two year old who has just learned the word NO".

And if that doesn't work, I go out and find a two by four to beat them senseless.
